1. Purpose. — a. In addition to the couriterlhtel licence responsibllltiee recognized in 
30-25 and the usual field security counterintelligence mission, there exist other counterin- 
telligence responsibilities which fall upon c jmmandere of geographical areas and which must be 
assumed by theater commanders and the commano;tH ol units therein, but for wnlch no personnel 
^kvlslon is made in Tables of Organization, ftiese responsibilities are those connected with 
prevention or neutralization of the activities of enemy agents within the territory oc- 
cupied. Included in these responsibilities are the need for the prevention of the entrance of 
enemy spies into the territory and the prevention of their communication of information ob- 
tained to the enemy once they are in such territory, together with the neutralization of their 
espionage activities. Also incluoed is the n»ed for the prevention of the entrance of enemy 
saboteurs into the territory and the prevention of their reaching installations vital to the 
military effort. This counterintelligence mission requires personnel particularly trained 
and specially cr-»alifled. The fulfillment of this phase of the counterintelligence mission 
demands organization upon a territorial basic, with provision for personnel to remain in the 
territory, operating without being moved with tactical organizations. The necessity that a 
number of men Ln this work be placed undercover for long periods of time and that many oper- 
ate over extended periods without in any way disclosing their connection with th« Army, em- 
phasizes tnc need for a Corps iree from the limitations and the control of smaller tactical 
ur.L * a. 



b. The mission of the Counter Intelligence Corps is to furnish appropriate commanders 
with carefully selected personnel specially trained and equipped to assist commanders in the 
performance of *-he duties incident to this type of counterintelligence coverage and the mis- 
sion of field security. It will not serve tc replace or assume responsibility for tactical 
security or cotntereubversive installations prescribed for all field force units. 

c. . In ordier to accomplish this mission, the Counter Intelligence Corps will utilize 
commissioned and enlisted personnel which haf been carefully selected and thoroughly trained. 
This personnel *111 be fully Investigated as to its loyalty, discretion, and basic qualifica- 
tions prior tc its transfer to the Counter Ir telligence Corps. 

d. This manual furnishes the basic prirclples of the operation of the Counter Intelli- 
gence Corps anc it will govern the organization, administration, operation and employment of 
Counter Intelligence Corps personnel, fcfrere applicable, its provisions apply equally to 
Counter Intelligence Corps activities in the zone of the interior and ln theaters of opera- 
tions. 

2. Freedom of action. — a. tt is essential to the effective accomplishment of the 
Counter Intelligence Corps mission that the personnel of the Corps be encouraged to exercise 
it* -r.i lis.'.; v : the fullest exter.t a-~<i tha* it be perrrltted tc operate with minimum re- 
strictions upon its movements or channels of communication. Counter Intelligence Corps cre- 
dentials and beiges will be. honored at all t:mes. The personnel of the Corps is frequently 

tious action ani f when engaged upon such mien lone, it must not be delayed by the observance 
of standard customs and prohibitions. Speed is an essential of counterintelligence, and 
lateral cosanun-Lsation between Counter Intell gence Corps echelons is authorized.

b. In order for Counter Intelligence Corps detachments to perform their missions effec- 
tively, expeditiously, and In a secret manner, it 1b eaaentlal that the conun.indihg officer 
of earh detachment hava full authority, in appropriate clrcunrntnnct*n, to c!ir»»ct the movement 
of hla man within the area of his Juriadlction upon his verhfil author izntion and without either 
previous or subsequent written orders. It la further advisable that the commanding officer of 
Una Counter Intelligence Corps detachment attached to a theater of oprrnt ions be designated an 
assistant adjutant general for purposes of preparing and issuing classified orders to Counter 
Intelligence Corps personnel. 

3. General supervision. — The Assistant Chief of Staff, G-2, War Department, will pre- 
scribe policies governing the administration, operation, and employment of the Counter In- 
telligence Corps. The Military Intelligence Service, War Department, acting through the 
office of the Chief, Counter Intelligence Corps, will render general supervision over all 
Counter Intelligence Corps activities, but the immediate supervision of operational activities 
of the Counter Intelligence Corps will be exercised by the commands in which detachments are 
serving. 

4. Function of command . ~Tfre employment of the Counter Intelligence Corps is a basic 
function of commend and is an operational activity. The commander of any organization with 
which Counter Intelligence Corps personnel is serving, is responsible for the proper and 
effective organization, administration, and employment of such personnel. In the discharge of 
this responsibility, these commanders will be governed by the policies established pursuant to 
the provisions of paragraph 3. 

Juriadlction. — The Jurisdiction of the Counter Intelligence Corps is limited by the 
counterintelligence jurisdiction of the command with which it is serving. The extent of this 
Jurisdiction in the zone of the interior will be limited by the Delimitation Agreement of 
February 2Z, entered into by Military Intelligence Division, Office of Naval Intelli- 

gence, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In departments, and defense, service, and 
base commands overseas, jurisdiction is limited by the counterintelligence responsibility of 
the conroend. In theaters of operations, jurisdiction is limited by the policies of the com- 
r.-^ding general of the theater, and by existing international agreements. 

6. Power of arrest .-- a. The personnel of the Counter Intelligence Corps on duty in the 
United States haa only that power of arrest which all citizens of the United States possess; 
that is, the power to arrest any person in the act of committing a felony. 

b. Counter Intelligence Corpe personnel in theaters of operations will have full power 
and authority to sake arrests in cases within its jurisdiction where it is apparent that the 
arrest being made is essential to the performance of thelcounterintelligence mission and that 
its accomplishment is not in violation of any policy of the commanding general of the theater 
of operations with respect to such enforcement activities. 

7 - Publicity . —a. The fact of the existence of the Counter Intelligence Corps will not 
be considered as classified information. However, every effort will be made to keep identi- 
ties, locations of personnel, and methods of operation confidential. In the event that con- 
tact is unavoidably made with individuals connected with the press, radio, or other news 
agencies, every effort will be made to prevent publicity. 

fe. Since Counter Intelligence Corps personnel will, from time to time, be used in under- 
cover capacities, identification cards furnished such personnel will bear no military title. 
This applies particularly to post exchange and gasoline cards. It is deemed advisable that 
Counter Intelligence Corps personnel be addressed by all concerned as "Mister" during con- 
versations tfUch «ight divulge the identity of such personnel and its connection with the 
Counter Intelligence Corpa, in a manner which might be detrimental to the Military Intelli- 
gence mission. Konnally, such personnel will be addressed as "Mister" when in civilian 
clothing and by military title when in uniform. 

Z, Emphasia will be placed upon the protection of the identity of Counter Intelligence 
Corpa pereoroel both in the interest of the mission and to protect the lives of the personnel. 
The identity of ambers of the Corpa will be disclosed to the minimum number of civilian or 
military personnel. All members of the Corpe are constantly subject to being placed on under- 
cover or other Missions where a knowledge by others of their identity would seriously Jeopard- 
ize the success of the mission and endanger their lives.
